Not much went right for Lin in his playoff debut. He made just one of his seven shots and committed four turnovers to go with his four assists.

He didn't fare much better on defense, with Westbrook falling just two rebounds shy of a triple-double despite sitting out the fourth quarter of a 120-91 blowout.
